Pet Friend Poem

My dog was the world to me. He was like my guardian. When I cried he rubbed his nose on my cheek and he comforted me and licked me a lot on the cheeks.

Shadow's Death

© Diana Oliva
Shadow died by crossing the street
That angel flew above my feet
When I saw blood coming out of his head
I silenced my words from my mind
I said donít worry Shadow Iím not that far
Just say the words Iím in my car
My dog was so fun he made me laugh and cry
He didnít talk he barked
I promised Shadow he wouldnít die
That promise broke so strong
I called my mom she says sweetie whatís wrong
Mommy heís gone
Whoís gone
Shadow is heís gone and I didnít get to say goodbye
thatís the story of my baby boy Shadow

R.I.P Shadow
